call of duty 4 punkbuster support discontinued in 2014 fix

Postby bl0m5t3r » 08 Feb 2014, 19:28

well, i'm sure many of you have heard about this tragedy. Punkbuster stopped support for cod4.

Most of us have had cod4 installed for a long time and won't directly notice it, but for fresh installs it's problematic. They can't get the right punkbuster files to play on our or many of the other punkbuster protected servers out there. So to accomodate all those fresh (or reinstalling) cod4 players, here is a solution:

1] install punkbuster as usual
2] update punkbuster as usual
3] download these punkbuster files for cod4: http://www.mediafire.com/download/l34pj ... me1/pb.rar
4] copy the "pb" folder from the archive into your cod4 folder, overwriting the old one (if there).
5] you should be able to enjoy the game now.

typically your cod4 folder will be located at one of these paths:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare (default for 64bit windows)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare (default for 64bit Steam)
C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare (default for 32bit windows)
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare (default for 32bit Steam)

to make thing extra clear, here is a screenshot of my cod4 folder:

enjoy.

I hope this will solve MaliBoo's problem, he didn't play cod (except 10 minutes of gungame on my PC) for like a year.

well support was only dropped in 2014, as explained in the title and in the post. So if he's having problems for about a year, this will not be it.

Awesome blom. I was able to play on the server till yesterday as I had my old OS with COD4 installed. But as I bought SSD and installed a fresh OS along with COD4 , I got kicked by PB when I entered FK server #2 . I was about to write my problem but I saw the solution before .
So, thanks for this. :mrgreen:

I am just wondering why they discontinued their support for COD4 and COD 5 ? Weird.. :?
COD4 is solved, now where I am gonna find COD5 PB files? :(

Also because it's not free and Activision most probably dont wanna pay PB for keeping up database and streaming on a game they get no money from. Or the licence just ran out, who knows.
The perfect blossom is a rare thing. You could spend your life looking for one, and it would not be a wasted life.

Knowing may be a half the battle, but in some cases proper spirit can win the battle before it even starts.

Because I just needed this:
A version of pbsetup that supports legacy games like COD4:
http://www.pbbans.com/forums/files/pbse ... ile80.html

This version also comes with support for server install, but needs a GUI, so if you want to use it on your dedicated be prepared to launch VNC etc.
